Munich  International  School  (MIS)  is  proud  to  announce  the  outstanding  results  of  its  2017  International  Baccalaureate   graduating  class.  Two  students  in  the graduating  class,  Milena  Roeckl  and  Florentin  Zander,  achieved  a  perfect  International   Baccalaureate  (IB)  Diploma  score  of  45  points.  Only  244  students  in  2017  –  approximately  1  in  1,000  students  –  who  sat  the  IB   examinations  world-­wide  achieved  this  distinction.        

Milena  Roeckl  studied  higher  level  chemistry,  English  and  economics  and  was  involved  in  co-­curricular  activities  including  the   MIS  athletics  programme,  theatre,  student  newspaper  and  annual  service  trip  to  Tanzania  throughout  her  education  at  MIS.   When  first  enrolling  in  Grade  5,  Milena  did  not  yet  have  knowledge  of  the  English  language.  She  recounts  that  her  teachers  at   MIS  were  a  great  inspiration  with  their  individualised,  creative  and  applicable  approach  to  teaching.  Milena  plans  to  combine  her   passion  for  chemistry  with  her  desire  to  work  with  people  and  apply  to  the  joint  medicine  programme  through  Technische   Universität  (TU)  and  Ludwig-­Maximilians-­Universität  (LMU).      

Florentin  Zander  will  be  studying  economics  and  politics  at  Yale  University  in  fall  2017.  Florentin  studied  higher  level  mathematics,  physics  and  economics  during  his  education  at  MIS  and  says  that  his  engagement  in  co-­curricular  activities  such  as   Speech  &  Debate,  Model  MUN,  Business@School,  the  MIS  Football  Team  and  the  service  trip  to  Tanzania  greatly  enhanced  his   studies  and  helped  him  develop  his  academic  and  career  goals  for  the  future.       MIS’  additional  outstanding  results  on  the  International  Baccalaureate  (IB)  Diploma  exam  include:       ▪  An  average  score  of  34.4  (compared  to  a  global  average  of  29.9)   ▪  A  pass  rate  of  96%  (compared  to  a  global  average  of  78.6%)  

Munich  International  School  students  have  continued  to  achieve  consistent  success  on  their  IB  Diploma  examinations.  In  2016,   there  was  a  100%  pass-­rate  for  full  IB  Diploma  students.  In  2015,  two  students  achieved  a  perfect  score  of  45  points  and  13   students  scored  40  points  or  above.     2017  has  also  been  a  significant  year  for  academic  achievement  across  all  three  schools  at  MIS.  Students  in  Grades  3  through  8   participated  in  the  International  Schools  Assessment  in  February  2017  and  outperformed  students  in  even  the  best  national   systems  such  as  Singapore,  Finland  and  Korea.  Additionally,  Grade  10  students  participated  in  the  IB  MYP  eAssessments  in  May   2017  which  resulted  in  several  points  of  pride.  The  MIS  Middle  Years  Programme  (MYP)

Certificate  average  score  was  41.2   (compared  to  a  global  average  of  35.8)  and  MIS  students  scoring  significantly  above  global  averages  in  15  of  21  subjects. “MIS  students  have  again  made  us  proud  through  their  exceptional  performance  in  externally  benchmarked  examinations  and   assessments.  We  know  that  students  do  not  excel  academically  in  a  vacuum.  Caring,  committed  and  highly  competent  teachers   partner  with  engaged,  supportive  parents  to  create  the  conditions  for  success”,  remarked  Head  of  School  Timothy  Thomas.  “I  am   grateful  for  the  dedication  and  hard  work  that  so  many  of  our  educators  and  staff  invest  in  nurturing  our  students  to  achieve  their   full  potential.  In  addition  to  our  students’  achievements  in  the  arts,  in  athletics,  in  service  and  in  leadership,  these  academic   results  bear  witness  to  the  power  of  an  MIS  education”.
